KOKOMO, Ind. – The IU Kokomo Crescendos are ready to rock this Christmas with their annual holiday production of, "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree."
"Our show gets everyone into the spirit of Christmas. We usually have a themed Act 1; this year will be rock, and a stand and sing sacred music for Act 2. This year will be no different," said Alexander.
"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" show dates and times are Friday, December 6, at 7 p.m. in IU Kokomo's Havens Auditorium, and Friday, December 13, at 7 p.m. at Peru High School. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and seating will be first come first serve.
All shows performed by the Crescendos are free and are open to the community
The Crescendos are a non-auditioned seasoned show choir of 84 students, alumni and community members. Within the Crescendos is a smaller group called the Diminuendos that are a hand selected a-cappella group.
"This choir shows the community and region that IU Kokomo is always growing and doing great things. It gives students and community members a place to perform and have a great time while building a family," said Alexander. "Several community members have re-enrolled in school and some high school students have chosen IU Kokomo all due to their involvement in this group. Also, it keeps alumni connected and proud of their university."
The Crescendos will hold open auditions for their spring musical, "The Producers." Auditions will be January 13 and 14 in the Main Building, Room 148. You do not have to be a member of the Crescendos to audition. Show dates are the first two weekends in May.
